Golden in color qith a nice white head. Aroma is hopped like a pale ale with a touch of lager (yeast?) notes and light bready maltiness. Clean light hopped flavor with a lager finish. Quite refreshing and not bland, which is good!

Very simple yet rich flavor which consists of Floral Hops, Yeasts, Barley and a slight malty backbone. Perfect beer to drink on a hot summer day at the beach or just to kick back and relax

Tall boy can from Sonoma Cellars. Pours a deep, yellowish-amber color with a big white head. Aroma is malty, bready, corn. Medium on the palate with soft carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, corn. Itís 95F outside today, and this beer hits the spot. A very tasty lager.

Thereís really nothing positive to say about this beer, other than if New Belgiumís goal was to make a dumbed-down craft beer that mimics Michelob, then job well done. Really, guys. You should be ashamed. Bring your audience up; donít lower your aim.

A nice lager in a can! A good balance of malt and hops makes this one easy to drink - a little less alcohol and it would be perfect for a summer day.

bhensonb (12951) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 25, 2012
Can from Malt and Vine. Pours gold with a slight white head. Aroma suggests resin. Near med body. Flavor is somewhat bready, but itís mostly about the hop. Floral, citrus, resin - I think this has it all. Wouldnít be surprised if this is the best "Premium Lager" in the world.

Can into a pint glass pours rich gold with streams of effervescence and a dense cloud-like head that stays for the whole glass. Aroma is signature NB honeyed biscuit and fresh bread with a floral woodsy and kinda citrusy hop profile. Very fresh. Taste is surprisingly similar to a Ranger IPA I enjoyed last night, very clean fermentation profile with a lingering clean berry finish. Body is medium and chewy with high carbonation and a long bready citrusy finish. Overall, I think this would be a great lager for professed ale-heads. Very delicious, will purchase again.
